Tiago Splitter Tips In Game Winner vs Warriors

The San Antonio Spurs were resting Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli in a nationally televised game against the Golden State Warriors last night, did the Warriors know that this was a bad thing for them? Probably not. The Warriors probably thought they could walk right through them for an easy W, as did everyone else. Last season in a game against the Miami Heat, Gregg Popovich sent four of his top five scorers home and was penalized by the NBA for it, the Spurs bench played great team ball and defense and almost beat the Heat, it was a tie game with 22 seconds left and Ray Allen hit a three pointer to steal the game. We knew the Spurs were something else when we saw that and last night they proved it again.

The Spurs reserves defeated the Warriors 104-102, Marco Belinelli poured in a career high 28 points and Kawahi Leonard had 21 points and 10 rebounds. Tiago Splitter hit the game winning tip in with 2 seconds remaining to silence the Warriors crowd.
